Who built the Ronda bridge?
Los arquitectos José García y Juan Camacho recibieron el encargo de construir el puente de Ronda y fueron elegidos para el proyecto. Las grandes obras comenzaron a trabajar en un diseño de un solo arco en 1735. Según los registros, terminaron el puente a tiempo, pero no de la mejor manera. Resultó que todo el puente se derrumbó 7 años después, en 1741. Por desgracia, el derrumbe se cobró la vida de 50 personas, la mayoría de ellas residentes en la ciudad de Ronda.
¿Por qué se construyó el puente de Ronda?
In the year 1700, Ronda finally had the opportunity to build a bridge over the river Guadalevín. The reason for this bridge was to facilitate the transport of people and vehicles and to serve as a link between El Mercadillo and La Ciudad. It became necessary due to the impossibility of using the roadway through Jesus Christ.
How high is the Puente Nuevo de Ronda?
The New Bridge was built between 1759 and 1793, more than three decades. It is considered a masterpiece of engineering. It is 98 high and 70 m long.
What exactly is the name of the bridge in Ronda?
It is called "PUENTE NUEVO" and is known for having the best views. The best views of Puente Nuevo are obtained from the small path that starts at the Plaza de María Auxiliadora. Apart from its beauty, the Puente Nuevo de Ronda is also known for its mysteries and legends, which have been recounted in numerous books and historical writings.
